24 November 2001 | Profrplum
| A modern fable
A fine cast, particularly John Corbett and Stacy Edwards, with good performances from the youngsters, aids this otherwise slightly better-than-average Christmas tale to achieve a high level of entertainment value and sentimental expression. No, it's not for the cynical, but its admixture of the difficulties broken families experience during the holidays particularly and the hope that Christmas engenders in all but the hardest-hearted of us brings the potential for love and progress to the fore for the audience.

There's no reason not to enjoy this and let wistfulness take charge once a year. As another reviewer said, it will become a regular at Christmastime, and it should.

Oh. A final note. Jack Palance is excellent in his small but significant role.
